Free ebooks are the best. They’re a great way for readers to try new series risk-free, and they help authors reach new audiences. But there’s just so many of them that it can be hard to find one you like.
Free ebook Friday spotlights a free ebook I’ve personally read and enjoyed, and hopefully, it’ll help you find a good read. The posts come out on random Fridays, not weekly, and the books featured will probably be speculative fiction.
This week’s pick is:
Come for the coffee, stay for the supernatural adventure. There’s more than one way to catch a ghost, and it’s never been this fun!
Katy and her grandmother have always used coffee to catch ghosts. It pays the bills and keeps them in high-end beans. But after her grandmother dies and a rival ghost hunter moves to town, Katy fears things will never be the same.
From a beguiling and charismatic ghost whisperer to her new partner’s ghost swallowing brother and even a (short) stint behind bars, Katy navigates her new reality, uncertain her skills are equal to the tasks at hand. But are these things mere distractions–or do they hide something darker, far more sinister, something that has a long-held vendetta against Katy?
To survive, Katy must uncover an ancient secret. She must brew her very best Kona blend. She will need to rely on unexpected and unpredictable allies.
To survive, she will need to trust what’s in her heart.
Coffee & Ghosts is a cozy paranormal mystery/romance serial told over five episodes. This series bundle contains all five episodes.
The book blurb grabbed me on this one. I like coffee, and I like ghosts (fictional ones, anyway). A main character who uses coffee to catch ghosts? Sign me up.
And I’m so glad I gave this book a try, because Coffee & Ghosts is the perfect cozy Halloween read. Each episode was just the right length for me to read in one evening to unwind before bed–though a couple were so good that I started the next episode the same night and stayed up too late.
We’ve all been there, right? #BookwormProblems
I thought Katy was a sympathetic heroine: kind of shy and insecure but with a big heart and a quiet strength. It was nice to see her relationship with Malcolm develop over the episodes, and the supporting cast has a great mix of fun and tragic characters.
The ghosts were fun. Most of them were mischievous little sprites who are nuisances rather than murderous threats. That doesn’t make for much of a plot, though, so the heroes do come across more dangerous spirits. The big villain of the season was legitimately creepy and threatening, but things never got scarier than a wimp like me could handle.
